Gotta love Alafia on a weekday!
« on: March 05, 2008, 07:13:57 PM »
Was able to go to Alafia today after work.  Only had time to ride North Creek and Rabbit Ears.  Wow does that other trail at the end of North Creek stink...literally.  I know it is old news, but WOW.  Especially after a little rain to moisten up the vulture crap.  Cool ride though.  The weather was perfect and there were 5 cars in the lot.  Some some friends in the parking lot and nobody on the trails.  Man, I love the new Rabbit Ear section (no, I haven't been out there in a while).  I remember the rock search during one of the trail maint. days.  Great ride, made a lousy day better!

You gotta' do it!  Make sure you keep your momentum at the entrance over the rocks, (it's not bad.)  Then after the first turn it flows really well.  Fun little short loop.  Kind of wish it were longer, but it's fun.

That short loop is like riding a half pipe.  It is great!
